Edinburgh Airport (EDI)
Glasgow Airport (GLA)

Two cities with distinct personalities, Edinburgh will entrance you with its modern and medieval architecture, and Glasgow will mesmerize you with its museums, vibrant nightlife and welcoming people. 

Visit The Land Of Braveheart

From bagpipes and kilts to stories of myths and legends, you can expect the unexpected in Scotland. From a 12th-century castle to a Scotch Whisky Experience — past and present collide in Edinburgh. Much of the city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and there’s a distinct air of mystery and intrigue everywhere you turn. No trip to Edinburgh is complete without a hike up an inactive volcano to Arthur's Seat, the highest point in Holyrood Park at 822 feet. With a visit to one of Glasgow’s fascinating museums — that includes displays of royal regalia with scepter, sword and crown — you can uncover secrets of the past.

A must-try is Scotland’s national dish, haggis. This savory pudding combines meat with oatmeal, onions and spices, and its warm, moist, meaty and spicy taste is a comfort food you don’t want to miss. Along with traditional Scottish fare, Edinburgh and Glasgow’s menus are filled with amazing seafood, French, Spanish and Italian-inspired cuisine, and an array of international options, including Indian and Thai.

If you’re interested in nightlife, both cities offer a variety of options. In Edinburgh, you'll find great performances at the Royal Lyceum Theatre and live music at Usher Hall and several local pubs around town. For the most lively bar scene, head to The Basement or Cask and Barrell on Broughton Street in New Town. Glasgow is home to some of Scotland's trendiest clubs. If live music is what you crave, you'll find tons of options. Barrowland, the ballroom turned music venue, is perhaps the best place to see a live performance, and King Tut's Wah Wah Hut claims to be the place Oasis was discovered.

You will love shopping in Edinburgh and Glasgow. For upscale, high-fashion finds, including some of the top London designers, make your way to Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Here, you’ll also find Scottish souvenirs, including whiskies, trinkets and tartan. Following right behind London, Glasgow boasts the second-largest retail space in the United Kingdom. This shopping haven features everything from tiny boutiques to some of the most cutting-edge fashions.

Consider a day trip from either Glasgow or Edinburg to The Highlands. Its amazing concoction of culture, history, architecture and unparalleled scenery fills the air with a haunting mystery — not to mention some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the world.

Whether you stay in the shadow of historic Edinburgh Castle, in a spectacular coastal setting with breathtaking views of the Irish Sea, or steps away from St. Andrew Square, your Delta Vacations Edinburgh/Glasgow trip will be an exciting and memorable experience.

For the flexibility and convenience to travel when and where you want, add a car rental to your package. It’s the best way to venture out of the city to enjoy the beautiful countryside.
